Inexpensive Microwave Radiometer-Based Passive Sensing System for Short-Term Forecasting of Satellite Link Quality

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr. Frederick Solheim
Award Amount: $99,837.00
Abstract:
It is known that atmospheric observations by microwave radiometers can predict and measure satellite link losses. These instruments, however, have historically been costly, bulky, and somewhat fragile, and therefore not desirable for monitoring satellite link conditions. Radiometries is proposing… More
